    If you have no key unlocking then the only suggestion is to make up a lead with 2 small crockadial clips and put one to earth and then try and get other to your starter (there will be a thick cable going back to batt - connect to this) underneath, that will push enough power through cables to power up the central locking, should be able to remove your engine cover from underneath to do this.

    Or, just bash in the off side rear lamp, I mean completely through. Then, remove the vacuum pipe from the central locking pump, and suck / blow till the buttons pop.

    If you've deleted all the key holes, then, I'd say you deserve to get locked out!

    surely there must be a boot lock as i've never seen a boot de-locked, just use the key in that, once the boot is open attach a set of jump leads or charger to the wires on the boot light to power up the system.
